Everytime I try to launch the kinect it gets stuck after setting the depth frame id and then the power system dies shortly after.

Well the stuck issue was simply me not realizing that the program was just running. The power down issue is that I swapped to a new and it seems to not show the correct charge for the iCreate battery now. Will have to just keep tabs on charging it until I have time to look into it.
